Introduction to Real World Understanding SystemsSummary Introduction ...................................................................................................... 3 Concepts and differences between understanding, interpretation, comprehension and influence ........................................................................ 3 Innovation programs objective and applications ........................................ 5Introduction If you ask me how I feel after having conceptualized, defined and started the design of the so-called “Real World Understanding Systems”, I would say, from an intellectual point of view, that Im reflective sure to hold the principle of demarcation established by Popper as for the scientific-technical character of the doctrinal formulations and the epistemological and hermeneutic fundamentals that define the innovation programs of the systems we aim to offer to society. In the same sense, I would say, from a designer´s point of view, that I am fully accountable, committed and convinced of the usefulness of the efforts made so far as well as those that remain to be done. Finally, as a person, I feel fortunate to be enriched every day with the realities and expectations of these systems that justify for their own a lifetime commitment.Concepts and differences between understanding,interpretation, comprehension and influence From a perspective that allows establishing “common places” to epistemology and hermeneutics, we can say that understanding is the product of cognitive-rational processes implemented by the specific combination of resources deployed by the existing intelligence. These resources are configured in order to conceptualize the perceived realities in the various domains of the world, maintaining conceptualization of true reality as its primary mission. In this sense, the process of understanding is prior to the process of interpretation 3 A White Paper by José Martín Juárez
  4. 4. Introduction to Real World Understanding Systemsinherent to the human being and whose ultimate goal is thecomprehension.The fact of understanding involves that the cognitive-rational system ofreference is identified with the epistemological structure of a scientificknowledge or a reality of the environment, i.e. from the systemic pointof view, understanding means achieving, decoding, encoding andrecoding the reality or knowledge shown.From understanding, interpretation, also called pre-comprehension,comes into play. Interpretation shapes the dialectic of knowledgeneeded to establish the codes and languages for comprehension in acycle that coincides with the model proposed by Heidegger.Compression is directly related to the proficiency in a language, be itverbal, written, or behavioral and in the codes established by geneticand cultural evolution. A person, organization or system thatcomprehends is one that dominates a code or language on a subjectand takes into account what is meaningful to its goals at the moment inwhich the comprehension has taken place.Influencing is a direct consequence of comprehension. Whocomprehends something, immediately takes another state of mind thatchanges its outlook on what he has comprehended, and therefore, hedoes not remain the same way but is forced to trigger actions, consciousor unconscious, intended to influence in the world in order to perceivea more accurate representation of what he "wants it to be" (the chanceof being), of what he "fears that it becomes" (the risk of being) or,finally, of what “is" (the problem of being).The innovation work that JMJLAB and WUNDERMAC haveestablished within the scientific-technical building of ScientificIntelligence is shaped based on the discernment of the meaning ofunderstanding, interpretation, comprehension and influence and itsepistemological and hermeneutic relations. As with ScientificIntelligence, we have begun to work on a rational-cognitive framework,giving up, by the moment, quantum and biomimetic approaches ashighly relevant and influential they might be in the future. 4 A White Paper by José Martín Juárez
  5. 5. Introduction to Real World Understanding Systems Regarding our technological innovation process, we have started to develop what we call "World Understanding Machines" without forgetting the connections and implications with the processes described in the preceding paragraph, but rather, keeping them very much present in our system designs. With these premises, we focus our innovation activity on creating and globally deploying dual (cognitive-rational) systems consisting of computing and training tools and people in a particular operational and organizational setting. The aim is to increase and accelerate the world understanding capabilities of individuals, groups or organizations so they can influence it in the best way for the individual and environmental objectives. Systems around our "Real World Understanding Machines" are inherently complex as are also the goals pursued by them and, therefore, cannot be addressed from a trivial or simplistic perspective. On the contrary, they require a process of continuous innovation and design oriented to develop transference systems and methods that enable the progressive improvement of harmonic functional models (of easy operation and complex structure).Innovation programs objective and applications Through the course of our innovation effort, we have seen an exponential increase of the shortcomings of individuals and organizations in the understanding, interpretation, comprehension and influencing the real world. This is due to the increase in world´s complexity. The causes of this complexness are, among others, our own individual and group progress, the phenomenon of globalization, the creation of intricate social networks in a short space of time, the old and new unsolved conflicts because of a poor perception of the world, etc. We believe that our innovation work is not only strategic but essential to provide conceptual and technological tools that enable organizations and general behaviors of the different social structures to be more efficient and less self-destructive. In this sense, organizations that use these systems become more efficient in their particular mission and 5 A White Paper by José Martín Juárez
  6. 6. Introduction to Real World Understanding Systems contribute more to the collective mission of the progress of human being who thinks, feels, loves and acts in community with other living beings. We have developed a framework that we call JMJLAB REAL WORLD UNDERSTANDING DUAL MACHINE REFERENCE MODEL which aim is to provide a basis for developing a systemic approach to our objective. This approach intends to be progressively consistent with the theoretical-formal academic work of scholars and researchers. The model also allows us to establish the design and development roadmap for our “ingenios1” and “Real World Understanding Systems” The applications of such systems are obviously transversal and transforming, i.e., there is no person or organization that cannot benefit from the adoption of such systems, for example:  The learning processes of children, young people or professionals in any area.  Organizations whose primary mission is to provide strategic information such as online information portals, investigation and intelligence government agencies, consultancies, etc.  The governance structures of organizations such as management teams of companies and public organizations, political leaders, opinion leaders, etc.  Professionals groups or with common problems such as unemployed, sick.  Knowledge workers.  Supra-national bodies to address global problems and resolve conflicts between nations, races, religions, etc.1Functionalities that enables to implement processes that improve the cognitive-rational capabilities of thesystem in which they are integrated and the organization that deploys them.
